    Acrophobia 35A: Death Comes As The End, Congrats Dolorous Gabe!

    Yeah, just carry on w/ whatever you were going to do. It would probably be an improvement!

    Rant & Rave without Repercussion: Burn It All Edition

    Drogon: Mama, about this heel turn and mass murder of innocents and whatnot ... Dany: Yes? Drogon: I'm a little worried about Euron's invincible ballistae. Won't that mess up our plans? Not to mention killing me. Dany: See if you can borrow some plot armour. The reason your brothers got killed is that they went out with no plot armour. I warned them a hundred times. Drogon: OK. *** Arya: Arya Stark here. Drogon: Hi, Arya! This is Drogon. You wouldn't happen to have any plot armour lying around, would you? Arya: Sure, I've got loads. Take as much as you like. Drogon: Thanks a million! (This doubly explains Arya's survival. Probably explains the horse as well. Drogon spared it so she'd have a horse to head home with.)(*) (*)My dirty secret is that I liked the horse. It didn't make much sense; but what does? At least it was cute.

    Nikolaj on working with D&D

    Hello! I saw the video, the one where he talks about how he disagreed that Jaime would come back to Cersei (I recall several eyebrows being raised about that plotline last season); I've no notion when it was made, I'm afraid.

    Everyone's probably seen this, but ... Sorry to get all linky, but hey. Can't resist.

    Interesting ... NCW does know the books; he made a video about Jaime's character some time ago (after season 7, I think). There were hints thast he might disagree w/ the way he was written there as well. I suspect we'll be getting a lot more of this shortly.

    Calling all Picts! : Pictionary 44 : A Nightmare of Spring

    Hoola! I've just checked the spreadsheet, and it looks like there's only one drawing round after this one. This means I would only need a total of three subs, assuming Meera can manage the next drawing round (which I don't expect to come around for over a week, at the current rate). So can we try this: KoA for Sniffer and Jez for Meera this round, and Buckwheat for Sniffer next drawing round? There are two more description rounds, one of which will be the final round for the game. Assuming Sniffer doesn't make it back for either of those rounds, but the other players can make it (description being a good deal less time-consuming than drawing),(*) I would only need to ask for one sub for each writing round. (*)Usually, although one of my pictures in the first round was pretty rushed.

    I hope so, too. Any volunteers? @Knight of Ashes Would you like to come in and save the day? @Meera of Tarth, a gentle reminder that I'm still waiting for the picture.

    Out of date now, because it's about ep. 4; but there's a lovely one of Ghost going Dracarys: https://www.chron.com/entertainment/tv/article/The-best-memes-reactions-to-Game-of-Thrones-13821428.php More relevant to the episode, but not as good as the ones in Comic Book Girl's Rewind: https://www.sfgate.com/entertainment/tv/article/Memes-reactions-to-Game-of-Thrones-season-8-13839636.php Like the one with the heads on spikes "broken logic", excessively "pessimistic ending", "ruined character arcs". I'm quoting from memory, but the purport is the same. (The memes are towards the end)

    Apparently D & D said Dany isn't mad and is one of the good Targaryens?

    I was introduced to Preston's rant-reviews last season, and caught up with season 6 in shortorder. I'd never even heard of Glidus until last week. Still waiting for him to skewer the episode. (Yes, I'm so "down" about last season that I'm actually posting to this thread! And I've even given two 5s this season! I know what you're thinking: "DUDE. How can you give higher than a 1?" I'm a fairly merciful scorer, although I haven't awarded a 9 since season 5.)

    I'm probably going to need a sub for the canine chap again.
